In the Land of the Milkweed again

I went out to capture some fall color and wound up in this intriguing field of milkweed. The shapes and bursting pods captivated me. I began exposing normally in bright light but as I stopped down [underexposed], the rim-lit pods really grabbed me and I began to see creatures from other worlds. I started to use my tripod but I found it limited my movement. I could maneuver better hand-held to get the background I wanted. What do YOU see?  Shot in Rock Creek Park with a Canon 70-300 Zoom, ISO 320, f:11, 1/1500 sec.  milkweed-bird-crop-minor-contrast-img_8924
